Only the way you sing them, Neil :roll:
So what are the other 474 lists then ? I’m not admitting to any OCD behaviour, just look on certain torrent sites !

:lol:

The London meet ups are always worth it to see how long it takes before Neil. breaks into song!

The mini-VGs would say all of his songs sound the same and are boring. Except Rockinghorse Road - they like that one.

You aren’t/weren’t fooling anyone else. But it’s one of the many reasons I love you!

Although they don't necessarily sound that similar, I always thought Alibi reiterated the dark mood of I Want You. The both utilise repetitive chord structures as well.
I love you just as much as I hate your guts.

"Secondary Modern" and "Watch Your Step" are nearly identical chord-for-chord.

I always thought "Harry Worth" from Momofuku sounded a lot like "The Long Honeymoon."

Elvis played Secondary Modern segueing into Watch Your Step and vice versa on the Return of the Spinning Songbook tour if my memory serves me correctly.
